Heb 11:1,6 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Understand, Faith or coming to Christ, pleases God 1 Jn 3:22-23 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. One of the Commandments pleasing in God's sight, is That we should believe on the Name of His Son Jesus Christ ! Jn 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: So these here in Jn 1:12 , by believing on His Name, did that which was pleasing in God's Sight ! So again, Faith, coming to Christ pleases God : Yes the Faith we need to Believe on Christ, believe on His Name, or to come to Him, which is the same, it pleases God ! We know this as we will look at a couple more scriptures . Now that Faith, Believing and coming are all joined together and equivalent, is seen from Heb 11:6 ! But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. The word Faith is the word pistis [noun] is the same word for believe, which is the verb form of the same noun, and it involves coming [pros/erchomai]: I.to come to, approach II.draw near to III.to assent to Now lets look at another similar combination of these words in Jn 6:64-65 64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
